While the Biden administration claims it lacks evidence of Iran’s role in Hamas’s war on Israel, Iran continues to heap praise on its Palestinian proxy.
Hossein Salami, the IRGC Commander, declared, “Today, the people of Palestine are pursuing and arresting Israeli soldiers without any fear, and Israel can no longer declare victory. Today signifies the end of occupation and aggression, with even the Americans unable to save them.”
His remarks coincide with reports from The Wall Street Journal, revealing multiple meetings held by the IRGC, Hamas, and Hezbollah to plan attacks on Israel in Beirut. Some of these meetings included Esmail Ghaani (Qaani), IRGC Quds Force Commander, and Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah.
The Iranian regime has openly signaled its involvement and support for Hamas, primarily through financial and arms support from Tehran and its leaders, Khamenei and Raisi, have both praised the weekend’s onslaught.
In 2018, US President Donald Trump’s special Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt claimed Iran provided $100 million annually to Hamas.
The Biden administration has faced significant criticism for maintaining diplomatic ties with the Islamic Republic and releasing $8.7 billion in blocked Iranian funds since June. Critics argue that providing financial resources to the regime enables it to fund terrorism in the region and globally.
In 2018, the US Treasury also revealed that it estimated funding to Hezbollah, Iran’s Lebanese proxy and the biggest of its militia groups, was funded with at least $700m annually.
